One of China's leading nuclear experts has said that his company's reactors are Year 2000-ready and pose little danger, according to media reports. Li Dingfan, president of China National Nuclear Corp. (CNNC), told the Business Weekly newspaper he had full confidence in the industry and its capacity to deal with any problems that should develop.
"If by any chance something occurs, the nuclear power plants can decrease their power or suspend their operation, and without any other mishap," Li said in an interview published in the newspaper's Sunday edition.
CNNC operates two nuclear power plants, one in Qinshan in East China's Zhejiang province and one in Dayawan in South China's Guangdong province, the newspaper said.
